Pollycraft Sonny's Party

I have a fun card using a free Pollycraft image today!  Pollycraft is offering 2 free images on their Tales From Pollycraft blog to use for a design team call or use however you'd like.  I chose to use the image called Sonny's Party because I enjoy coloring people.

She's colored with Copic markers E000, E00, E44, E43, E42, E41, G40, G82, R20, BV01, BV000, BV0000, B21, B23, C00, R27, R24, R22, YR24, YR21, Y21.  I cut her out with a Spellbinders Oval die using the out of the box technique.  I next layered my oval onto a Spellbinders Labels 14 that I embossed with a Cuttlebug dots embossing folder.  

I was working on my card while some of my crafty friends were over and they were playing with the distress inks so I thought it would be fun to make a background with the distress inks.  I used Barn Door, Bundled Sage, Wild Honey and Dusty Concord on an old Stampin' Up! Canvas background stamp, rubbed a little more on the edges, spritzed the whole thing with water and waited for it to dry to see what I had.  The first one was pretty muddy but the second one turned out to be usable.  

The sentiment is from the Digi Doodle Shop, a digital birthday set.  After printing it I cut it out with a Spellbinders Tags Trio die and matted it with SU Garden Green and rounded the corners with my new Corner Chomper 1/8th" corner punch.  Great tool!  For a finishing touch I added a button from an old stash of Stampin' Up! buttons threaded crochet thread through the holes and tied a little bow.

I hope you enjoyed my card today!  I just found out about the design team call for Pollycraft and it isn't open much longer so if you are interested you'll need to hurry!  

Thanks for visiting my blog today!
